Statement

Lynda Harwood-Swenson Land of Nowhere is a fantastical place of beauty, with lush fields of grass, trees, ocean and sky.  It also suggests a lost place, a “no mans land” with reflections on feminism, climate change and loss. One work, Sticks and Stones 1 & 2 (Lapidation), created by placing stones on photosensitive paper, with faces of women added where the rocks laid, asks the viewer to consider the treatment of women around the world, either through abusive rhetoric or by literal stoning. Through an installation of 12 monoprints on vellum titled Ocean, Ocean, and other prints of landscape, there is an immersive atmosphere for reflection and to ultimately ask the question, where do we go from here?
